PUMA NYY AND NYK PACK
PUMA releases their latest Trinomic pack, this time taking inspiration from the heart and soul of American team sport culture - the New York Yankees and New York Knicks. PUMA tips its hat to their sporting influence and re-imagines their famous colourways through archive running silhouettes.
The NYY NYK pack pays homage to two of the most iconic teams - NYY, the Yankees and NYK, the Knicks, which although from entirely different sporting worlds, both rightfully embody the density and richness of New York’s most watched sports - baseball and basketball.
Based in the Bronx, the Yankees are instantly recognisable through their signature navy blue, white and grey colours and the Knicks, from the heart of Manhattan, for their distinct blue and orange uniform. Each of the teams colours are channeled through one of PUMA’s most popular styles - the Blaze of Glory. Equipped with signature Trinomic technology, the sneaker employs a neoprene and honeycomb cell cushioning for support and additional technical detailing is created through a mesh vamp and the use of suede and leather overlays, creating clever blocking on the Trinomic midsole.
I am so impressed with how this pack has been executed, and the two teams have been perfectly embodied. I was lucky enough to have been sent the NYK half of the pack and my gosh are they beautiful! The buttery suede looks so smooth in the rich blue, and the basketball orange works so so well on the Blaze of Glory*!
